Founded in 2018, Sircula brings together top executives and decision makers from various industries across the globe to connect, learn and grow.
Sircula was set up by Mark Baker, a B2B events specialist with 20+ years’ experience delivering award winning large scale conferences, exhibitions and industry awards across a range of sectors.
Diversity and Inclusion Leaders (d&i Leaders) is our first business to business community. Members include 4000+ diversity, inclusion, HR, well-being, talent and recruitment professionals, along with allies and senior leaders, looking to accelerate their workplace D&I strategy.
We provide independent news articles, practical insight reports, a jobs board and strategic CPD accredited online and in-person conferences and training. Visit our website to find out more – www.dileaders.com
Each conference attracts 150+ attendees and speakers include senior leaders from some of the world’s leading brands such as Vodafone; Twitter; P&G; HSBC; Ford; H&M; Sky and IKEA.
Covid-19 has seriously impacted our business, like most, with the majority of our income traditionally coming from in-person events. We have used the past 10 months to improve our online membership offer, increasing dramatically our volume of free content, resulting in greater membership engagement and new sign ups. We have successfully pivoted our events online and are selling online tickets in great numbers than we ever did before.
Diversity and inclusion are topics on many executive agendas. Companies should be working to create more diversity within and outside of their organisation, because firstly, it’s the right thing to do, and secondly, it makes good business sense. However, progress has been slow and d&i Leaders exists to help connect individuals and organisations to accelerate change. Covid-19 as well as the continued rise of progressive movements such as Black Lives Matter and resulting demonstrations around the world, have further highlighted the need for inclusion to be a business priority.
We based in Beckenham, South East London at 80 Beckenham Road, London, SE20 7SP.
Being a start-up organisation, during the first year of operating, Mark put together all events and built the d&i Leaders community by himself.
